ASU vs. Stanford: Twitter recap

The Sun Devils fell to the Cardinal last night but the atmosphere surrounding the game was still one of the best in recent memory.

It was a much larger and diverse media gathering last night in the press box. Here is what they had to say throughout the night as the Cardinal crept closer to the Rose Bowl.

On the second play from scrimmage, Tyler Gaffney took the ball 69 yards around the left edge for a touchdown. The play was reviewed but the touchdown call stood. It was not the start most people were predicting.

The Sun Devils were blanked in the first half at Stanford on Sept. 21 so this was a good sign for ASU.

Gaffney punched in another touchdown from a yard out but the Sun Devils were able to hold the Cardinal for the rest of the quarter.

ASU punted and then the intricate scheme of Stanford struck again.

The Sun Devils went three and out once again and the Cardinal capitalized. Gaffney's dominance was not expected given Arizona State's recent success with run defense.

This was very true. It was a really tough half for the Sun Devils but two touchdowns was certainly not an insurmountable lead. D.J. Foster was almost singlehandedly keeping ASU in it.

At halftime, the Sun Devils had to be encouraged that they were able to stop Stanford from scoring for the last ten minutes of the first half.

ASU started the second half with the ball but couldn't capitalize. It is the Pac-12 title game but ASU fans can't be upset this season, the punting may have suffered but Gonzalez was great all year up to this point

Jordan Williamson shows Gonzalez how it's done.

Eubank came in on third and one to attempt a quarterback sneak. He got stuffed at the line of scrimmage.

De'Marieya Nelson rushed on the next play but got stopped too. As the third quarter ended the Sun Devils would need the perfect fourth quarter to pull off the upset.

Dagger. All remaining hopes for an ASU victory were dashed after Stanford widened the lead again

Arizona State is now staring the Holiday or Alamo bowl in the face.

The face of a man who knows he couldn't get it done when his team needed him the most.
